Team News – Wenger Confirms Boost & Offers Update On Bellerin

Arsenal face Swansea City in the Premier League tomorrow and all the players that went away to their country for the international break have returned in one piece. No new injury concerns.

Speaking ahead of the game, Arsene Wenger revealed we will be without Oliver Giroud and Aaron Ramsey who are both recovering from injuries.

Ramsey has been sidelined from the opening of the season with a hamstring injury while Giroud has been struggling with a toe injury.

The aforementioned players were expected to fit for the Swansea game, but Wenger has confirmed their absence for the upcoming game.

Wenger said: “Giroud will not be available. Ramsey will not be available.”

But midfielder Francis Coquelin and defender Carl Jenkinson are both back in contention.

Coquelin suffered a knee injury in the win over Chelsea and missed games against Burnley and Basel, while Jenkinson has been sidelined since January with cruciate ligament damage.

The Frenchman added: “Coquelin is back. Apparently we have good news [from international players].

“[Jenkinson] will be back tonight playing with the Under-23s. He is available to compete for places”

There also have been speculations as the future of Bellerin. Wenger dismissed the possibility of the youngster moving away  from the Emirates, stating that his long term future is with Arsenal.
